    If we change primary domain and make the new primary (main) domain. Then make the new parked domain.
    But were email accounts like when was the main domain. So will happen to those email accounts would they get deleted ?

    Hello :)

    The email accounts are not deleted, but rather they are updated with the new domain name. For instance, if you have test1@domain1 created, then it becomes test1@domain2 after you make the modification. You will have to create new email accounts for the original domain name and copy over the email if you prefer to keep them the same.

    Thank you.
